Nicole Kidman Houndstooth

With an outfit like that this L'Uomo Vogue cover should have been titled "Crazy Women" not "Crazy for Women". Nicole Kidman has taken on some brilliant and risky roles in the past but nothing as outlandish as this Chaplin meets houndstooth diaper fiasco.

Thanks to D for the recon on this one.

Lizard Brooch Horror

What is with the lizard brooch? I have to admit that whenever I see one I'm repulsed. No offense to lizards but I wouldn't want one scurrying up my lapel. They are agents of decay like worms and insects. They remind me of dutch still life paintings of rotting fruit. So my apologies to the lady on the bus this morning. My horrified stare wasn't entirely directed towards you. It was more for your lizard.

Houndstooth Cupcake

Butch Bakery is a New York bakery whose mission is to produce "manly cupcakes, for manly men". This includes the "B-52", a "kahlua-soaked madagascar cake with bailey's bavarian filling" which is topped with camouflage. I don't know if Bailey's and Kahlua are really manly flavors. I would have preferred an iris gin and mezcal based cream myself. Maybe that's what's in the houndstooth cupcake they also sell.

Houndstooth Olympics

SEC football isn't the only sport to have embraced houndstooth. I'll be tracking the houndstooth pattern during these next few weeks to see how it creeps up in winter athletic fashions. And from the archives: a stern Estonian coach in threatening houndstooth.

Your Houndstooth Valentine

Alyssa and Joslyn at Jane Joss have created this Valentine's Day plant for houndstooth lovers. It requires no soil and no water. It thrives on misery and tears.

McQueen Dead 1969 - 2010

After all those nasty things I said. Houndstooth can't even be talked about without some reference to McQueen. Fashion lovers and goths will be tolling the bells. He joins Mishima in the Elysium fields reserved for eccentric genius. Fashion has lost its cutting edge.

L.A.M.B. PVC Houndstooth Bag

Trust L.A.M.B. to continue its houndstooth crusade with this shocker of an 80's retro stylings of a bag. Something you might have worn with your parachute pants while out shopping for Duran Duran records. The "acid" fading makes it look like it has been sitting on a trash heap since the 80s and only recently creatively repurposed with a seatbelt for a strap. $175 at ShopBop.

Taylor Momsen Houndstooth Reaper

Spotted, Taylor Momsen houndstoothing it on the set of Gossip Girl. Watch out little J, the grim reaper called and he wants his vestments back. You know you love me. XOXO.
